Happy #IWD, folks. Today, @jkenney & @Alberta_UCP will to try to tell you they love women, they support women, they defend women. Let’s revisit the short 2 yr history of the party and their action on women’s issues - because we all know that actions speak louder than words #ableg
One: @JasonNixonAB, UCP House Leader fired a woman for speaking up about sexual harassment. Nixon was her boss and he fired her for speaking out. #MeToo
Two: Every single member of the @Alberta_UCP caucus walked out on a historical bill to protect women while they access healthcare. They walked out not once, not twice, not five times, BUT TWELVE TIMES while MLAs debated legislation.

2/10. On Tuesday, rape survivors & activists took the stage in front of an invited audience of 200 journalists, politicians, judges & police officials for the launch of a "bombshell report" revealing Denmark’s “rape culture” & endemic impunity for
rapists. amnesty.org/en/latest/news…
3/10 The report - the culmination of months of research - identifies key barriers to justice for rape survivors as flawed laws as well as widespread harmful myths & gender stereotypes. Cultural change is needed but "legislation carries culture" so changing the law was the target.
